You shouldn't care about what libqt3-mt-dev depends on. This is not your
business, and could very well change over time, breaking albumshaper's
build process.

If you directly use qmake in your build process, you must build-depend
on the package that provides it, qt3-dev-tools.

Same thing for depends: they must reflect exactly what the package
directly needs to work properly, not rely on its dependencies pulling
other dependencies.

     Temporarily specifies what compatibility level debhelper should run
     at, overriding any value in debian/compat.

I would rather:

  echo 4 > debian/compat

as suggested in debhelper(7).
